There many kinds of religions and their variations (Christianity - Catholics, protestants, various orthodox, Judaism, Muslim, Hindu, and more). However, there are only two types of religion: authoritarian and moralistic. In an authoritarian type the figure of authority (a preacher) tells to the folks: "God tells me what you must do, so, do what I say". In a moralistic type, it is: "God tells me what you should do, and I tell you. The rest is between you and God". Every religion has groups preaching one type or another. But Some religions tend to be more authoritarian and some less.
